    2004 Commemorative Edition Corvette Z06 - A Miracle Detailing - CQuartz Professional

    2004 Commemorative Edition Corvette Z06 - A Miracle Detailing - CQuartz Professional

    For a fifteen-year-old vehicle, it was in pretty good shape.
    Yes, there were swirls, etc. but I have seen a lot worse.

    After trying a few different pad/products combinations
    A two-step process pad/compound/polishing worked great.
    NOTE: Every paint is different - Always test first.

    Correction:
    Machine: Rupes 21 with a 5" backing plate.
    Compounds: Scholl Concepts S3 Gold XXL
    Pads: Meguiars Microfiber Cutting Disc - 5"

    Polishing:
    Machine: Rupes 15 with a 5" backing plate.
    Compounds: Scholl Concepts S30+ Nano Compound
    Pads: CarPro Gloss Pad 5"

    No feedback for you! Just kidding.

    Car looks great!

    Funny you say this, "NOTE: Every paint is different - Always test first." - On my last car, I did the usual test spot. Several. Settled on one. Next panel I did....it required a different combo! That car was a pain. In the end, I think I tried 7 or so combos. It was a respray and I guess the body shop wasn`t very consistent in their work.

    Question: The CarPro Gloss pad. Do you find it has some "polishing" ability like a typical white polish pad? or is it more on the softer finishing side?

    I`ve had a few of those...every panel is different. (sigh)

    IMHO the CarPro Gloss pad is on the softer finishing side.
